Javelin, right? I swore I'd never patronize them again after the treatment they doled out to me at Thurleigh Autodrome a few years ago.

Which circuit are you using and are wives and children allowed on the premises?

Oh that! Errr... I can feel a poll coming on. :lol:

I'd say outer circuit cos it's faster but I'm sure Mark will confirm.

Ta for that.

To fill you in on my gripe with Javelin....I booked a morning at half-term (without TBH, looking carefully enough at the regs) to bed in some new brakes on the FIA car. Consequently turned up to the drivers briefing in the caff and me and the boys settled down for a fry-up. 'Was aware of a few odd looks but didn't realise anything was wrong until I was told by the MSVR man that we had a problem. Apparently, no U16s are allowed on the site...at all (an insurance thing).
"OK", I said, "I'll shut them in the truck with their iPads and they won't be released until well off the premises". MSVR man OK with this as long as I didn't break my promise but no, some old twat from Javelin was having none of it and threatened to stop the entire day until my boys were removed from the site. And he just couldn't stop repeating how it was my fault, and that I should've read the regs... over and over and over again. I had not so desperately wanted to slot someone since schooldays.
OK, it was my bad but I have never encountered a more unreasonable and unhelpful prat in all my life and vowed there and then never to do a Javelin day again. This was well over 5 years ago and I'm still bloody fuming. :twisted:

I would second that. Eastern is more involving to drive and for the slower cars more usable, also easier on the engine.
